Optimal Financial Centre Inc officially became a federally incorporated company, on October 21, 2010. But we are by no means newcomers in the Insurance Industry. To learn more about where it all started; click here

“By changing our structure, part of what we are doing is acknowledging that we are now firmly entrenched in a new way of serving our clients,” said CEO and co-founder, Guylaine Gauvin.  “Over the last 4 years, we have evolved from representing one insurance company, to offering most insurance companies in Canada that is wholly devoted to bringing the best options on the table.” 

“When we were captive advisors, we constantly told our clients that the captive distribution channel was the best.  But now, it’s not just about finding a right product.  It’s about finding the perfect opportunity for our customers to meet their financial goals.  So, our focus hasn’t changed one bit.  It’s all about the client making the right decision for them, with the right product.”

In 1997 Optimal Financial Centre co-founder, Guylaine Gauvin started as a Financial Advisor.  She then accepted a position managing a captive sales force for a well-known Insurance Company in New-Brunswick.

In 1998 Optimal Financial Centre co-founder Rene Hache brought his knowledge of the banking industry to a career in financial planning industry.  Then he rapidly made his mark in building and managing a captive sales force for a well-recognized Insurance Company.   

In the first decade of 2000, the Canadian insurance market started to change radically.  By 2010, most Insurance Advisors in Canada who were representing only one insurance company changed to Insurance Advisor Brokers. 

Offering products needed by clients and devoted to serving their clients’ needs on a product level.  Rene and Guylaine then founded a new financial insurance brokerage firm and “Optimal Financial Centre” was born.
